Smooth passing thread is a goldwork thread made of a cotton core wrapped with a narrow strip of metal plate.  It is similar to Japanese thread, but it has a slightly more wiry feel because the metal strip is narrower.  It is more robust than Japanese thread and can handle finer work.

No.7 is the largest size, No.4 the finest.

Like all our metal threads, smooth passing is made here in the UK.

Use smooth passing thread by couching over it (usually in pairs for a smooth line, but singly if you prefer).  Use either a matching or contrasting sewing thread with a coating of beeswax.
